Radial solutions for a nonlocal boundary value problem
We consider the boundary value problem for the nonlinear Poisson equation with a nonlocal term Open image in new window , Open image in new window . We prove the existence of a positive radial solution when Open image in new window grows linearly in Open image in new window , using Krasnoselskiiés fixed point theorem together with eigenvalue theory. In presence of upper and lower solutions, we consider monotone approximation to solutions.
